    Some of the early 50's 2wd Wagons used this engine for a couple years, along with passenger cars like the Aero. These 161's were a common swap into the VJ Jeepsters back in the 1950's.

    Yep, and I've noticed his story about engine trouble has been inconsistent over that long long long long long.... time. At one point he claimed it was his grandfathers and knew nothing about it so he'd take $5k.
